Wow, Michael, this is going to be amazing. I'll be excited to hear the difference between this and your Kostal.

In fact, when the guitar is finished I'd love to hear you play Rialto on it--I think your video of Rialto on your Kostal is perhaps my favorite guitar video ever.

Getting excited as if it's my own build!! Casimi is definitely near the top of the list for builds I am aching to experience.

Wow! So glad to see Episode one. Can't wait for more, but as you said, can't rush perfection.

When the British and Boer accent clash, is an interpreter required? :lol:

Totally looking forward to this coming together!

Thank you very much! Rialto is definitely going to be one of the first things I play. It's a really effective piece to test the dynamic and timbral ranges of an instrument.

You really can't! Hope you're well my friend, hope to see you soon!

Thankfully I think we're all used to it! Hows that MDW?

Hello everyone,

It's been a little while since I last posted - I hope you're all well and healthy and that you'll enjoy this update about my incoming instrument from Casimi Guitars.

First up here is the mould - ready to receive the double sides.

Here they are, African Blackwood on the outside and wengé on the inside - tasty!

And here's a shot of the glued rim with the neck and end blocks.

In this episode of my video diary I explain some of my thoughts about African Blackwood in the context of this instrument (my tastes generally go towards mahogany and maple so this will be a real sonic departure) and Matthew and Matthias share their own thoughts on this wood and the use of laminated sides.



All the best

Michael
